51job feels effects of slowdown in Q1

Chinese job board 51job.com failed to conclusively dismiss rumors of a downturn in late 2018 with its Q1 2019 results. Revenues increased by just 12.4 percent over Q1 2018, to 911.9 million RMB ($135.9 million U.S.) — well short of the 30 percent growth rates that the company consistently maintained in 2018.
